A Homestudy!

Filed under: Africa Adoption — Tamra @ 3:25 pm

Our homestudy arrived today.  Now if only I could get my computer to communticate with my printer and then I could fill out and mail our I-600A.  I will have to have David fix it for me tonight and I’ll have to mail it out tomorrow.  But woohoo!  We’re on our way!

Nothing much to report

I’ve been kind of lazy about getting the dossier done.  I have everything done that needs to be done by someone else and it’s pretty much down to the letter I have to write to Rwanda about why we want to adopt.  I don’t know why, but every reason I want to adopt just looks silly/crazy when I put it on paper.  DH thinks that must be a sign LOL.  I just can’t seem to get the perfect letter to flow.  When I tell people about the adoption, most look at me as if I’m out of my mind.  I know I’m not, and that this little girl/girls are meant to be in our family…but it’s so hard to convey that to other people and on paper.

I can’t even think of names.  I secretly hope that they will have beautiful names allready and I won’t have to address the issue.  I have two middle names that I like.  Liberty after my great uncle, and Afton after my great aunt.  I’m partial to Asha, Angeline, and maybe Zion for first names…but I really don’t think I’ll even be able to think of a name until I meet them/learn their names.

Rani’s clogging recital is tomorrow, and her ballet recital is Thursday night.  They are both at Cyprus High school at 7pm if you are interested in coming to see her.  I’m sure she’d be thrilled.  I’ll post pics soon!
